How to Apply

Lycoming College female student

Admission to Lycoming College is competitive.

Applicants are evaluated on the basis of their academic preparation, talents, and interests, as well as the college's capacity to help them achieve their educational objectives and career goals.

Use your application and supplemental materials as an opportunity to show us who you are, academically and personally. Lycoming seeks to enroll students who show a dedication to intellectual growth and a commitment to their community. Our students recognize the importance of both academic achievement and personal growth outside of the classroom.

1. Choose from three application rounds:

  • Early Decision (Common Application is required.)
    • If Lycoming is your top choice, or your only choice for college.
    • If you are accepted early decision, and your financial aid package is affordable, we anticipate that you will enroll at Lycoming.
  • Early Action
    • If you want to get a head start on your application process, without the commitment of early decision.
  • Regular Decision
    • We review applications on a rolling basis, beginning Nov. 16 for fall and Dec. 1 for spring.
